Supporting your Local Cloth Diapering Community

Posted by Andrea Nance on

 

Never Grow Up Boutique is proud to announce our partnership with the Cloth Diaper Connection. 

Cloth diapers can help families save money, but the high up front cost can be prohibitive for many. Cloth Diaper Connection was founded in 2011 in Columbus, OH with the goal of making cloth diapers accessible to low income families in the community.

Their mission is to advocate for the use of cloth diapers and empower families to positively impact their financial stability, their health, and the environment.

Since their founding, they have slowly grown and expanded the program to serve families in the counties surrounding Franklin County, Ohio. They continue to make improvements in order to expand their capacity and reach more families.

Never Grow Up Boutique is proud to be added to their available drop-off locations for gently used cloth diapers and cloth diapering accessories to lend to families in our community. We're also a drop-off location for those clients to returned borrowed pieces. We will take care of making sure these resources return to Cloth Diaper Connection for you!

Diaper Donations: 

Cloth diapers must be in usable condition with no leaking issues, and they must be clean with no significant staining.

In order to keep things simple and to ensure families are successful in their cloth diapering journey, we typically do not use the following items in our program:
– wool or fleece covers
– Gerber diapering items
– Kawaii, Alva, Sunbaby, or similar branded diapers

Please know that any items we decide not to use may be sold in order to raise money to purchase brand new covers, fitteds, and prefolds for our program. We purchase these items because they are cost effective, and our families have consistently had success with them. We have made arrangements with cloth diaper manufacturers to get the very best prices possible on these items so that we can maximize the benefit of all the donations we receive.
